The program at a glance
The non-degree Study Abroad programme in European Culture and Society (PECS) at the Faculty of Arts is designed to offer international students from around the world a unique experience of pursuing a variety of academic disciplines, with courses taught in English. The full programme is open to Bachelor students in their third or fourth year only. As the international students remain registered at their home university, PECS does not offer degrees as such.
The courses cover a whole range of fields from the Arts, the Social Sciences, Political Science, Business, Psychology, Religion, Philosophy… Programme participants will be taking classes with students from Leuven, Europe and the rest of the world. In addition to this PECS has put together a package of extra-curricular activities to ensure that European culture and society is more than just a course subject. In Leuven it becomes a part of your daily life, an experience that you just cannot miss. Leuven is, in every way, the perfect home base to explore Europe. These activities and events are also open to Erasmus/Socrates students, exchange students and students from other international programmes at the Faculty of Arts.
